While guided meditation apps are no substitute to an experience on retreat they can be a good place to start.

If you want to explore guided meditation through an app, the groups below are doing a good job of making that possible. Each one is a little different, so we recommend you check them out for yourself, then decide which one best fits you.

We've provided a little information on each from their pages.

Good-luck!
